TEENAGE

MATT WOLF

Book Tickets

Closing Thursday, January 28th.

Inspired by Jon Savage’s book of the same title, Teenage challenges the notion that youth culture began with Elvis Presley and rock`n’roll, charting the concept of adolescence as emerging from the turn of the 20th century when child labour was being abolished in progressive countries, creating a wider gap between being defined as a child and taking adult responsibilities.

A young voice cast (Jena Malone, Ben Whishaw, Julia Hummer and Jessie Usher) relate tales of exemplary kids from America, England and Germany. They include a nihilistic society girl partying in the 1920s, a member of the Hitler Youth, a rebellious Swing Kid and a black Boy Scout. Filmmaker Matt Wolf (previously responsible for the superb Wild Combination: A Portrait of Arthur Russell) weaves these stories together with rare archive footage, recreated scenes and a terrific score from Bradford Cox (of the bands Deerhunter and Atlas Sound).
